Matters That Matter To the Health and Well-Being of Seniors
Sept 14 – Dec 7, 2017
We are offering a series of 8 workshops where we explore, discuss and apply practices that promote health and well-being for seniors. Our aim is to provide useful information, skills and support that increase our capacity and capability to live a healthy and engaged life.
Seniors and for those who support seniors and are interested in issues related to seniors.

Program Designers & Facilitators
The 4 Pillars of Health and Well Being
- Physical/Body: exercise, nutrition, sleep, financial responsibility
- Mind: knowing ourselves & our self-worth, being proactive, commitment to life-long learning, focusing on our thoughts, defining our priorities, expressing our creativity
- Heart: connecting with others, establishing relationships, caring for self and others, respecting our emotions, valuing our friends
- Spirit/Soul: Passion and purpose, knowing and living our values, exercising gratitude, following our conscience, honoring ourselves and others and our values and contributions
The format encourages dialogue, questioning, participation and meaningful conversation on the topics presented by the facilitators of the sessions. The design of the workshops is interactive and provides space for reflection on, and application of the ideas, practices and issues discussed.
